Okay, I’ve got all my gear together… or at least I think I do. Veterans of the Camino, I ask you this question… what is the secret coolest item to have with you… the one that no newbie would ever think to bring…

I’ve already got a section of thread and safety pins for stringing up a clothesline…

Anything else that’s a “secret” must have?
